ChronicleChamber.com began in 2006 as a humble discussion forum. It was not long before it grew into a full fledged website and became the only Phantom news related site on the internet. Since that time the site has gone through several changes and established itself as the place to be for all your creator interviews, discussion, art, issue listings and, of course, news on what is happening in the Phantom’s world. For more information on the history of the site, see the site’s entry at the Phantom Wiki.
CC is run by a small but dedicated group of phans united by their love of Lee Falk’s hero.
JoeMD (aka Joe): Joe is the kind of geek to wears his geekery proudly on his sleeve. Or shirt. Or hat. Or whatever piece of clothing he can get away with. The Phantom was the very first piece of literature that Joe took to as a child. This introduction to The Phantom started not only a life long love for the man in purple, but also for the comics medium in general. Now, some twenty years on since beginning his collection, Joe has spent more money on comics than he cares to admit.
When not reading comics Joe can be found playing retro video games, drawing, reading fantasy novels, writing for reto gaming site RetroCollect, planning for teaching classes or spending time with his very understanding girlfriend.
On ChronicleChamber Joe is the admin and creator of the site. So, if you find a problem it’s probably his fault. He posts news, reviews, issue listings and various articles as well as designs and codes the site. You can see more of what Joe gets up to during dark nights on his Tumblr blog at Dusty Cartridges & Long Boxes .

Vivek: At about age 6 got introduced to the world of superhero comics by reading The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician from Indrajal Comics. During those early years was always hoping they would reveal Phantom’s face, now I am just glad they didn’t.
Favourite Phantom Story: Many more classic stories still need to catch up before I conclude any of them as my all time favourites. For now: The First Phantom, The Golden Beach
Favourite Phantom Artists/ Writers: Lee Falk, Sy Barry
